Memory Care facility in Georgia receives rave reviews

Family Members of Camellia Place Residents Express Heartfelt Gratitude 

Best Assisted Living 2020

Each year thousands of seniors enter skilled nursing facilities to receive care for physical and/or mental disabilities. For many family members who must place their loved ones in these institutions, they experience high levels of anxiety. And, some of that anxiety is justified.

It is not easy for them to put family members in the permanent care of others. It’s hard to relax knowing that the ability to protect their elderly mother or father is out of their hands. They wonder how their loved one is doing, and how they are being treated in the care facility.

In the wake of a changing pandemic environment, some things will never change, however. Such is the mission of Camellia Place. Camellia Place was designed to be different.

It was designed to look and feel different. It is a senior care home that takes care of those seniors with varying degrees of disability, and must be cared for in a skilled, yet nurturing environment. In its memory care program, for example, 

Alzheimer’s patients receive specialized care in the hopes of maintaining brain function. It was created to be a place where seniors become each other’s family members, and form lasting bonds. The care they receive has put Camellia Place in the national spotlight for its ability to care for seniors in a creative and compassionate way.

The cards and letters come from family members communicate similar heartfelt expressions of thanks. One relative writes: “Thank you for doing so much to keep my mom…safe during the Coronavirus pandemic.” Another family member writes, “[We] have thanked God repeatedly that [she] is there and being so well taken care of.” 

One family member, Candy Morrison, whose parents are residents of Camellia Place–and the mother recently passed away–says of their decision to place her parents there: “As a family, we could not have done better.” In other words, there was no better place than Camellia Place in which her parents could get the love and care they needed.

In the hearts of these relatives, their decision to trust the staff at Camellia Place with the care of their parents meant peace of mind. That is something that money cannot buy.

Adding Life to Senior Years at Camellia Place

Assisted Living, at Camellia Place, is full of Surprises in Woodstock, GA

Small Home Assisted Living and Memory Care Neighborhood in Georgia

The Camellia Place mission is to “add life to years” rather than just years to life, and this commitment to personalized care permeates every aspect of life in this assisted living and memory care neighborhood.

Assisted Living Activities

“Who needs a community pool when you have a home-made slip and slide. Made me tired just watching all the trips back and forth, but the big smiles, belly laughs, gestures of joy made all of us feel like a kid again. We know it’s a hit when the chant is “do it again”, so count on seeing this one again soon”, exclaims, the director of Camellia Place, Andrew McFall.

Adding ‘Life to Years’ During the Pandemic

As we learn to adjust to the COVID-19 era, the design of the Camellia Place assisted living and memory care community lends itself to safe, family-oriented living that allows seniors to interact with members of their own household without risking their health. The neighborhood design also lets residents walk out onto the grounds and participate in activities. Being creative during this crisis keeps the residents encouraged even when they don’t see their family members as often as they like.

Residents have been able to participate in ‘backyard BBQs and concerts ‘in the park’ taking place in the courtyard located in the center of the community where residents can watch, dance and sing along from their front porches and sidewalks.

The Camellia Place approach to assisted living and memory care was born from the founders’ personal mission to develop an exceptional neighborhood that not only cared for its residents but nurtured them in mind, body and spirit. The kind of living they would want for their own parents.  This mission is echoed in the dedication and support of the staff and caregivers.

As executive director, Andrew says, “If we keep doing our best, our hope is that Residents stay safe and family members have a sense of peace knowing that Mom and Dad are in good hands. We are all one family, and this is just what family does.”
